The San Antonio Spurs legend joins Dirk Nowitzki, Giannis Antetokoumpo, Luka Doncic and Pau Gasol in this iconic international roster.
Fans were reasonably upset when the league office kicked Parker out of their 75th anniversary team, but maybe that move will help them save face with the South Central Texans.
Parker played for the Silver and Black in his first 17 NBA seasons, becoming a six-time All-Star, four-time All-NBA Honoree, four-time league champion and the 2007 Finals MVP.
The speedy Frenchman scored 19,473 points and delivered 7,036 assists during his decorated basketball career, ranking sixth and second all-time among international players in NBA history.
Parker was also an accomplished global competitor, with several LNP and FIBA accolades on his resume. And it should come as no surprise that he is considered the greatest French player of all time.
